. [ gunfire ] a hail of bullets rang out as the last suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev held off police in a watertown, massachusetts neighborhood in a backyard last night. we learned from university of massachusetts dartmouth officials, he was on campus every day until thursday, attending classes, parties in dorms during that period. now he is in custody in a boston hospital under heavy guard. we are also remembering four people who were killed, three at the marathon monday and the m.i.t. officer killed during a shootout with the two suspects. with the hunt over for the suspects, we are focusing on the full puzzle on cnn. how is it two brothers described by many as normal are suspected of horrific terrorist bombings. want to head to cnn's susan candiotti at the center of it all in watertown, massachusetts. so what has the watertown police chief been saying about the investigation and last night's take down, susan? >> reporter: hi, don. we are getting more details from the chief about what happened and just to show you that things are still happening out here, we can show you still have
of the weekend. we know that the fbi is interrogating dzhokhar tsarnaev. what are they hoping to get from him at this point? >> interrogating may be a bit of a grand word here, because it's certainly not the kind of interrogation they had planned, where they speak to someone. it's being conducted with notes and nods and because he can't speak, he's on a ventilator. so it's a very slow process. but during this period, their government is limited in terms of what they can ask him. because they're doing this public safety exception to the miranda rule. they've not advised him of his rights. so they can only ask about potential threats to public safety. were there other conspirators, other bombs out there, any reason to believe that public safety is in any way jeopardized. >> pete, one of the persons cited in terms of this idea that there may have been more violent plans on order at the hands of the brothers is this person who was hijacked by the brothers on thursday night. and the driver of a mercedes suv. we know that he's been cooperating with police. is there anything else that we know about

and the homemade grenades and exchange with police how dzhokhar tsarnaev escapes? how does he get out of that standoff? i don't fully understand that yet. >> what they said at the news conference -- they said twice he escaped on foot. he abandoned a car they said in watertown and escaped on foot. it does seem to be, based on the news conference that his ties are to watertown. so this is an area that he is familiar with and very comfortable with and he would have the advantage on foot. >> bret: okay, catherine, thank you. house homeland security chairman republic mike mccaul of texas has access to the latest information. he is here with us this evening. first, mr. chairman, thanks for coming back. your thoughts after hearing this press briefing about this man hunt and what they are dealing with. >> i think they have relative confidence where he may be and that's why they are opening up the city. again, they can't clamp down this city for more than 24 hours. like you, i'm a little bit astounded that he he escaped the scene after the carjacking event. but i remain very hopeful and positi
see dzhokhar tsarnaev just after the murder of an m.i.t. police officer. >> first the headline from the suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, we acted alone. a u.s. government source quotes the surviving suspect saying the older brother was the master mind and they had no international ties to terror groups. he also says the men were motivated by radical islam and the jihadist goal of waging a holy war. they learned to make their bombs from readily available instructions on the internet. deborah has the latest from new york. >> wolf, we can tell you investigators are painting a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this tamerlan tsarnaev was living. his pull here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucasus. what we can tell you this morning is that the m.i.t. officer that was shot to death did not radio into dispatch to request a description of the suspect and he did not alert dispatch he was responding to the two men who apparently came up to him totally unaware. he was shot four to five times according to a source. it took at least nearly 13 minutes to actually f

the suspect might be. the suspect who we're looking -- who they're looking for is named dzhokhar tsarnaev. this is his picture. dzhokhar tsarnaev. he is originally of chechen origin. he's lived here quite a long time. he and his brother came here many, many years ago. his brother, tamerlan, with the same last name, he was killed overnight in the shootout we've been talking about with police that john miller just laid out for us in watertown. so they have not found the younger brother yet. he is believed to be heavily armed, perhaps carrying explosives. he's obviously proven to be dangerous. and right now there is just a full-court press trying to find out where he is because until they can neutralize him, there is a potential that the threat goes forward because we don't know what else, if anything, he might have planned or have been up to. and also at the same time, on another channel, investigators are trying to find out if these two brothers were simply working together as a small two-man cell or if they were working with something larger. at this point we have no evidence of anyone el

as dzhokhar tsarnaev lies in a hospital bed facing charges. his condition now reported as fair. more than a week after the bombing, 45 of the scores of wounded remain hospitalized, and at least 13 have lost limbs. for the victims, the physical and emotional toll comes with a very real financial one as well. massive bills for trauma care, prosthetic limbs and even home modifications. not to mention, lengthy physical rehab and psychological counseling. as such, one fund boston is stepping in to help. already raising over $10 million for victims and their families. and while the injured struggle with recovery, the families of those killed in the bombing are facing their own staggering loss. the family of 8-year-old martin richard held a private memorial releasing a statement today, "this has been the most difficult week of our lives, and we appreciate that our friends and family have given us space to grieve and heal. a private funeral mass was celebrated this morning with immediate family. we laid our son, martin, to rest, and he is now at peace." and friends, family and colleagues are sayi
bomber had been captured. minute later an ambulance considerlying dzhokhar tsarnaev made its say and 24 hours after terror in this boston suburb. tsarnaev was captured alive but injured from a boat parked in a driveway. >> the citizens in the city of boston and this area can be confident that the threat has been removed. >> the break in the case came friday evening when a homeowner noticed blood on the boat's protective cover and called 911. law inforcement sources say they exchanged gunfire with the suspect. a neighbor caught the fire fight on video. >> ultimately, the hostage rescue team or the fbi made an entry into the boat and removed the suspect, who was still alive, in the boat. >> the standoff came almost 24 hours after believe to have killed a police officer at the massachusetts institute of technology. that led to a fierce fire fight in police in watertown that killed tamerlan and may have injured his brother. it has been a long day for the people here in watertown and in the greater boston area. the search for the tsarnaev brothers have closed schools and offices and shut dow
, several republican senators today say they want dzhokhar tsarnaev tried as an enemy combat tant, not as a criminal defendant. >>> meanwhile, 53 people remain in boston hospitals today, three of them are in critical condition, including a 7-year-old girl. right now, we go to watertown, where the suspect, again, was captured last night. nbc's luke russert is standing by for us right now. luke, what's happening in watertown today? >> reporter: well, craig, it's really extraordinary. i will hold up a headline from the boston the globe, which says nightmare end, a fitting headline for all the residents of watertown. before i came into this hit with you, i went and walked through both of the crime scenes, the one where the secondment is was ultimately found in a boat and i went to where the big shootout was early friday morning and it's quite remarkable to see. this is very much a story of apple pie and chevrolet neighborhood, today, after all that horrific violence that happened in the community, all that fear that happened in the community, they were shutdown, families are out. you
interview more about tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev. shannon is driving us from washington. what did the uncle have to say today? >> wolf, his name is ruslan tsarni. today the uncle is speaking a different tune. i started the interview asking what's your reaction to the capture of your younger nephew. take a listen. >> i'm relieved. i'm relieved that he's alive and now there's a chance to find out who was behind it. who is the mentor and how possibly he could get involved and do this harm to innocent people. second of all, i stress that there's a chance for dzhokhar to speak forgiveness. >> when the older brother was a young child, the uncle actually had him in his care for a while and i asked the uncle about how he interacted and kept up with the older son for over the years. the uncle said in 2009 he had a conversation with the older brother, the older boy, and that he noticed a change in his voice where he was becoming more extreme in terms of his religious views. i asked him what he attributed that to. take a listen at how he described that. >> i called one of the gentleman livin
of massachusetts at dartmouth where the younger tsarnaev was enrolled told nbc's jeff rossen that dzhokhar actually discussed the bombings at the gym the day after they took place. >> i talked to him about normal things going on in the day. i talked to him about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> you said that to him, talked about the bombing? >> yeah. he said it's really sad it's happening, it's a sad thing. it happens around the world, people here aren't used to it. >> reporter: he said it's sad? >> he said it's sad. looked me straight in the eye and said that. >> officials tell nbc federal charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video of the suspect putting his back pac down at the site of the second bombing and then acting very differently from those around him when the first bomb went off. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down. did not react when the first explosion went off. and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> now, bringing charges in federal court would end the contentious debate that's played out over the
. >> suspect in custody. >> tonight dzhokhar tsarnaev goes to court at his bedside. and there is more. they say he is lucid. adam. >> in the hospital behind me there is significant security not only downstairs but throughout the hospital. the u.s. marshals service has now officially taken over the security situation of him specifically. they have marshalls stationed by his room, in the hallway where he is. all standard procedures when the marshals take control. before the fbi was doing that. marshals will basically be in charge of him until he's well enough to leave here. we are told once that happens he will likely fly out via helicopter to a different hospital. it's the best way of taking him to his eventual holding cell, a federal holding cell. and about how that went down today with the arain men in his room. the federal magistrate was there, the public defender was there. he mostly answered with nods. he didn't speak a lot. that could be because there are reports he has an injury to his neck. the fbi also said the head-neck region to his leg and also to his hand. he is obviously still in s
as dzhokhar tsarnaev. he is the suspect two, the one in the white hat. his brother, tamerlan, in the black hat, was killed overnight in a police shoot-out. >> both men are believed to be from the chechnyan region of russia. they reportedly have been in the united states for one year. bob orr is tracking the story from washington. bob, good morning. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, gayle and charlie. well, the first order of business is to try to find the remaining brother who is on the lam, somewhere around the boston area, they believe, the man who has been now infamously noted white baseball cap backward. that's dzhokhar tsarnaev, we believe. he's believed to be 19 years of age. his family comes from the chechnya area, which you mentioned. his older brother, tamerlan, was killed in a police shoot-out last night around watertown, massachusetts. so the first order of business is to try to find that guy because they're worried that he's heavily armed, he may have other explosives with him, he's already demonstrated a willingness and an ability to kill, and they're concerned abou
, dzhokhar tsarnaev. a naturalized u.s. citizen, 19 years old, considered extremely dangerous. the hunt is focused, but not confined to a series of communities west of boston proper, including cambridge and watertown. 21 hours since the photo was first released, dzhokhar named on the loose. his older brother, his alleged co-conspirator in the bombing at the marathon died early this morning in a clash with police from which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now sp
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
